Each day between now and the end of October, Tee’d Off Tee Times will list each of the Top 12 Golf Courses in the Cancun/Riviera Maya destination.
The criteria we use is not scientific and the difference between 12 and 1 is really not that much. Personal preference, prestige in playing, designer, course design and layout, course conditioning and guest service were all taken into consideration.
Coming in at #2 is Riviera Maya Golf Club. A 27 hole Robert Trent Jones Jr. design features an 18 hole championship layout and a 9 hole executive course. The course is laid out in a unique natural environment surrounded by more than 290 hectares of dense tropical forest. It is the furthest south, 30 minutes south of Playa del Carmen but only 10 minutes north of Tulum.
The course is an impressive work of architecture with a spectacular synergy between golf and the lush Mayan jungle, integrating natural lakes and cenotes (sink holes) within the rugged terrain of an ancient limestone quarry. The Par 5-14th (shown) and the Par 3-15th are two of the most picturesque holes in the destination.
